The BEST (and easiest) Stuffed Mushroom Recipe Ever!

Trust me when I tell you that your friends will be BEGGING you for this recipe!  I know this because
a. Begging is how I came to have it (I've got no shame...) and
b. It's what happens to me every time I decide to make these delectable little morsels and take them to a party, get together, etc.

The greatest thing about this recipe (other than the begging and adulation described above) is that it's soooo easy to make with very few ingredients.  (My kind of recipe!)

Here's what you'll need:

3 packages of regular sized mushrooms, stems removed and discarded
10 pieces of bacon, cooked and crumbled
3/4 Cup Hellman's Mayo (no substitution here, bring out the good stuff!)
1 1/2 Cups Shredded Sharp Cheddar
Lawry's Season Salt, to taste

Here's what you'll do:
  • Take a 1/4 sized teaspoon or small melon baller to core out the mushroom stems and enlarge the opening of the cap slightly (to allow for more stuffing.)
  • Wash mushroom caps thouroughly and set them on papertowel to drain/dry.
  • Cook bacon and crumble.
  • In a bowl, mix together the crumbled bacon, mayonnaise, cheese and seasoning salt.
  • Fill each mushroom cap with the cheese mixture and place cheese-side up into a 9X13 baking dish.
  • Broil for approximately 7 min. or until cheese is melted and just starts to brown.
Warning!  Be prepared to either:
a. gain approximately 3 pounds (from eating as many as you can yourself) or
b. spend time handing out the recipe cards you very wisely made up in advance to save you from being smothered with people vying for your attention! 
Unless that was your goal all along...in that case~~
Revel in it!! :-)

What's your favorite recipe to take to party or get together?
